Mamó is a worsted spun DK yarn, made from fleeces of Poll Dorset and Bluefaced Leicester sheep that graze on farms around Lancashire and Cumbria. With this yarn we pay homage to those who came before us, passing on skills from generation to generation. In this case my Irish grandma/mamó who sat patiently showing me the loops and repeated stitches I needed to begin my knitting journey. Go raibh maith agat Mamó. (Thank you grandma.)
